Perfect draw helps Burgess land wins at meet

GREYHOUNDS: Bundaberg's Paul Burgess knew he was on a winner when he received the box draw for races two and three on Saturday.

The local trainer cleaned up at the latest meet, winning those races with Hypnotise Eyes (race two) and Larnach Lass (race three).

Getting an outside lane for race two, Hypnotise Eyes charged to a win in the last 150 metres before Larnach Lass used the inside lane to win race three.

"She was perfectly boxed, she likes going wide,” Burgess said.

"She's won a couple of 500m races before so I knew she would get home quick.”

Burgess said it was a good return to form for Larnach Lass as well.

"I've only had her for three weeks and she was a bit below her best last week after not being here for a while,” he said.

"I was very happy she was in box one and got the win.”

In other results the Allen Kelly-trained Hassie's Hassle ended run of Cabello Mucho, which had been unbeaten in eight meets in Bundaberg, in race five.

Hassie's Hassle won by more than a length from Cabello Mucho with Dodgy Credit third.

Race one was taken out by the Kylie Raines-trained Had Enough and the Eric Conroy-trained Swift Leah won race four.

The next meet for the club will be on December 16 with the heats for the Christmas Cup.

The Cup finals will be held on December 23.
